The fog should clear before noon and it will heat up quickly. Last nights model run moderated temperatures a little bit but a high to 24 or 25°C is definitely within sight.

Environment Canada also has the threat of thunderstorms in the area as do other forecasters.

The UWash model does not show anything but I will take the word of the professionals. The most likely spots for thunderstorms are pointed out in the tweet below.

Enjoy the sun!  It looks like after Saturday we might get some more. 🙂

 

Enjoy the day!
